Station Security - 27 January

In spite of everything published world wide...

Despite being the laughing stock of late night television...

Even in the midst of the mayor demanding explanations and bosses frantically Blackberrying back-and-forth so fast their thumbs are blistering...

Here's the 003 District back door as photographed 27 January 2009, propped open with a garbage can:


Way to go Burger Queen! You make us proud.

UPDATE: Post corrected for date - yesterday.

If police stations are like High Schools 003 is like Tilman H,S.

The quality of those who attend and expectations are much diffrent. Some districts this kod would gat away with it, others he would be stopped at the door.

****** NEWSFLASH ******

HEADLINE: CHICAGO DALEY NEWS

Today, The Mayor has demanded to know why there are still clear breeches in the security of the 003rd District Police Facility, after the recent, butt ugly "Vincent Richardson Incident".

Chicago Police Superintendent Jodi Weis is still on vacation and has not been heard from since the incident. Mr. Weis is reportedly traveling with his two feline soul mates, Guru and Utopia, in the Katmandu region of Tibet where he is in search of Xanadu. Apparently he was unaware that Xanadu is now playing live at the Drury Lane Theater at Water Tower Place !

In responding to questions about 003rd District Building Security, the current, but not for long Commander Crump-Hales stated that she believes that the door was simply propped open for this photograph 'just as a prank'. She further stated that she believes that the Officers from the 005th District are behind this as they have been playing some dirty tricks on her lately ! ! !

Leadership ???

The empty cylinder says:

J-Pud is no leader, but...

No matter who the leader is they will ultimately fail if they are not supported by a professional cadre.

By cadre I mean a core group of "Police", experienced, well trained, disciplined, and loyal to the Department. People proud to be in and around other working officers for the common good. A casre that understands that training others, not punishing them is the way to lead and a cadre that still relies upon common sense rather than "just directives".

We had that in the CPD once, for many years. Perfect? No. But a working department with more good bosses then not. These middle managers, Capts., Lts., and Sgts., were loyal and subsequently had a loyal following. The job got done.

Today we have no respect for a boss who never was the police. How can anyone expect him to be followed? D/Cs like Crupm Hales, just to mention one of too many, should never have been placed to her current position. J-Pud, same thing, this list goes on and on and that is an apparent lack of "cadre". (by my definition)

It seems like it's getting too late to repair this mess that the mayor has caused politically.
too bad.

J-Pud. Please don't site improper following of directives as the answer to your failures.

You are failing because you are not a leader and you have no cadre of leaders either.

For the inquiring minds, 023 has had, over the years, at least 3 incidents that resulted in armed offenders being shot at the front desk by the police. The last was a guy with a knife who lnged over the desk at the officers and was shot dead by a mass transit officer.

1/28/2009 10:53:00 AM


One was shot in the bus stop in front of the station in Halsted Street after he took an officer's gun and fired it in the station

This occured in the early 1980's

To the officers who sent the photos to the Sun-times and to SCC for putting the story on the front of the blog instead of leaving it in the comment section shame on you. While watching the press conference with Dugan and Jackson the reporters were asking questions they could have only gotten from this blog. This 14 yr old tried this in several other districts and has fine tuned his act and finally got away with actually getting in a squad car. Why was no one alerted with a city wide bulletin? Anyone can get in any station. You have plainclothes officers who dress worse than street thugs and have the tattoos to match. Are you so ashamed of your star that you never wear it? Granted the old stars were better, but it doesn't matter. I always wore my star with pride, I earned it. Anyone that does not wear an ID card needs to be challenged and if they are insulted that you don't know them shame on them, too.
If you SCC had left the story buried in the comments section and not posted on the lead page, I truly believe this would not be the lead story everywhere. You have ruined a W/C's good career and yes he is one of the best. The Sgt. messed up by not actually checking on the car and instead I am sure used his PDT or the radio to log the car. You can actually put no contact on a log when you don't see the car and that can happen. The PO in the car - I feel most sorry for her. I can tell you that sometimes you work with someone for 8 hours and they never talk and it is not her responsibility to check his ID or star and in the winter you cannot see everyone's gun. Anything about this job can be learned here in black and white on this blog. You can pick up the latest rumors, who gets transferred, what bosses suck, which bosses are good.
You have truly done a disservice this time SCC. I hope you are proud of yourself and this blog. I for one will only check to see if you have the guts to publish this and then I will never view this blog again and yes I will give a clue to who I am.

It's simply dipping your pud in pop, preferably gingerale or seven up so your unit doesn't get stained. After that you offer that particular pop to a homeless guy that's laying around stinking up the station. You feel absolutely glorius after that. No seriously- quit spying on the sgt's and go to work you numbskull. BTW: Puddin pop=Walter Green.

OT- just a couple of things about OSHA. Illinois is a federal OSHA state, not to be confused with the 29 states that have a state-run OSHA. Federal OSHA has no jurisdiction over local governmental agencies. Therefore, calling OSHA is a waste of your time.

Second, OSHA has less than 1,100 inspectors nationwide. An OSHA inspector told me that if she wanted to inspect every business in her jurisdiction just ONCE, it would take 110 years!

If you want to verify any of this, call your local OSHA office (listed on www.osha.gov) and ask to speak to a compliance officer.

As incredible and embarrassing as it was to believe that story about the 14 year old we need not all be ashamed and embarrassed. I think that would have never taken place had he chosen 23 out of the 25 police districts. He wouldn't have gotten very far in just about every district in the city. The only two districts that were extremely vulnerable to this are 3 and 5.
I assume the reason he chose 3 is that even as a 14 year old civilian he knew how fucked up the 3rd district is. It is probably the worst district in this city in terms of a lot of dog ass do nothing coppers. That includes the field officers and just about all the inside people. If accountability goes all the way up I don't see how the utterly useless Crump-Hales doesn't take a hit on this one. If there's a shred of credibility left to this department and Jfed some coppers,bosses and yes Crump- Hales need to take a hit on this one.

Actually this little tattling BITCH is only half right. The other reason is because the overabundance of females, both sworn and civilian, (there has to be at least 10-15 civilian women in 003),working inside, who cannot handle a temperature below at least 100 degrees. They get the building engineer to bump up the thermostat, and to hell with the rest of us who are assigned to field duties. God help you if you come in with anything, (go ahead...talk about us being dogs...I know all you Super-Cops and 2 year wonders out there are thinking that, but hey, you aren't here, and have no clue!), especially in this weather. Try processing an arrest while you're simply dripping sweat because you have on long underwear, and a turtleneck, and a uniform shirt, and sweater...just so the "girls" won't be freezing.

Anyone who is dissatisfied with Weis's performance (and it appears there are many on this blog) should show up and watch him try to squirm his way out of this one.
While I can't say this is his fault, it's time that the public takes a real hard look at a seriously flawed "leader" of the 2nd largest Dept. in the USA; hopefully the public here in Chi will ask just one intelligent question after the hearing is concluded: "Who hired this asshole?"

To the asshat from the 010th District... Handicapped access is not a joke... IT IS THE LAW ! The Handicapped Access button is not there "so a line of armed gunmen can storm thru unobstructed". It is there "so a line of HANDICAPPED ARMED GUNMEN can storm thru unobstructed".

Secondly, your Commander is obviously on his way up the ladder. By copying "the cool red 'do not enter' signs", the D/C saved $200+ for the Mayor's Olympic Mad Money Fund. These savings add up and may eventually earn him enough points for an Olympic Lap Dance!

Has anyone else noticed the level of censorship on the Chicago Tribune/Chicago Breaking News website?

If you comment on an article it doesn't post automatically and must be reviewed for the politically correct sentiment.

As much as I dislike the media I have to commend the Chicago Sun Times for allowing uncensored comments.

FUCK THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE, CHANNEL 9, CHICAGO BREAKING NEWS AND SAM ZELL.

I will leave the Chicago Cubs alone since they aren't owned by media whores anymore.

I don't blame Blago for fucking with you media pukes.

WAKE UP PEOPLE, the news industry in Chicago is controlled by `121 N. LaSalle St.

the doosh aka 2nd district is totally fucked up and unsafe. no security in the parking lot by officers personal cars and by all the squad cars. bangers come and go as they please without confrontation. i swear my partner and i are the only ones that challenge them and shake them down.

the homeless bums that havent baithed in over a year and God knows what diseases they have riddle the front lobby and hallway. you have to hold your breath the hold time your by the desk. i passed out twice from the smell and when i awoke my money was gone out of my wallet. fucking theiving cops at the desk.

the heat sealing machine is at the corner of the front desk directly next to the public, arrestees family members, homesless folk and anybody that cares to wander in. its a tragedy waiting to happen. it wouldnt take much for anybody to snatch a bag of money, jewelery or drugs and be out the front door lickety split. whos the brain scientist that came up with the positioning of the sealer?

instead of doing stand up roll calls and having bigbird handging out at court which has absolutely nothing to do with station security, have him come by and check out all the gangsta poleece personal cars in the lot or check out the group spending their entire tour chilln at the front desk or chubby the smoking lock up keeper spending his whole tour smoking outside or hiding in the locker room.

while im at it, why is the heat set at 90 degrees. we dress for the weather on the street and when we come in with an arrest or tvb we have to suffer. turn the damn heat down. broken record aye!

Again, you all are a great group of men ane women who really get nothing more than negative press, and every heroic deed gooes unnoticed, which I think is a crime.

Yes, this incident is an ugly check mark, but you all come through it o.k,

And not that this takes any solace in the incident that happened, I take comfort in knowing that I believe just like the PPD and the Upper Darby PD, you all are the absolute best..

The media may have given you a black check mark, but they have no respect for you all anyway, and yes it's true that some of the public have less than stellar reveiews of you all, but the majority of those are criminals anyway. Quite honestly, I blame that on the media for ALL the negative press the media hands you, and it really isn't fair.

You all will get through this and hopefully it was a lesson learned for some and have tougher rules implemented for your safety, as well as the public.

When I make my way out to Chicago, I want CPD's Finest protecting me because I have faith and courage in a wonderful PD and I trust you with my life.

Try to hold your heads held high. Be proud. Do your job, and know that there are still good people who support you 100%.

Oh, yeah, and get rid of that idiot Weis and incompetent Mayor so you can do your jobs the way your're supposed to.

Lee Seward, may he rest in peace, was a desk officer in 023.

A citizen grabbed another officer's gun, and fled the station. Lee pushed open the screen, and popped the POS.

Some time later, Lee was killed by a goof on a second return to a "loud music" complaint. While his female partner watched.

First wagon officer up the stairs killed that offender.

Bad news for all.

To all civilians from a civilian,

Let's talk manners...
1) This is a cop blog for cops by cops usually about cops, so try and leave it to the cops. Occasional posts that are supportive or concerning the topic of the day, are tolerable, but don't overstep.
2) Identify yourself as a civilian, the cops will know it anyways, but its just polite to say it.
3) Expect a certain amount of shit when you do post "your a civilian", but you'll also be surprised to find out that you can get some pretty inciteful decent comments back.
4) Don't be lazy, if you don't know what something means and it really means alot to you to know what it means, spend some time and go thorugh the blogs or maybe other internet resources to find out. Understand that you won't know who everyone referenced is, but with a little research you can figure out who the more noteworthy players are.
For instance, when the "Burger King" moniker appeared a while back, I thought, what the hell is this about. Within one minute I was able to find an official statement from the CPD about what this was all about, and within five minutes, I had found where she probably got the idea to try something so asinine, (Did she really think a special education exercise in team building for mentally challenged young adults learning to live together in a group home could be used to resolve gang warfare, well, I guess she did, but if this was the highpoint of her career and example of her leadership, then the people she serves, are really fucked aren’t they, I digress)
Don’t be lazy, try and figure it out yourself, or understand there are things you won’t know,
5) Enjoy this site, its probably one of the best for political scoops, and can be very funny, although understand that gallows, dark humor may pervade simply because of the nature of the profession.
6) If you are like me, and things you read about here piss you off, as a civilian, as a citizen its your job to get involved. Demand that your elected officials do something about whatever it is that gets you worked up. Why do we have such a dismal appalling situation in Chicago with the Police Department. Why is morale so low that de-policing has happened ? Well, mainly its because, civilians who have allowed elected and their appointed leadership get away with it. So if you are surprised to learn that homeless people are allowed to live in a police station, go there, and give the person in charge some shit about, not the people at the desk who are victims of the decision, but the person in the office that is allowing the situation to happen. Ask your alderman why a station is allowed to be a shelter, bring it up wherever and whenever you can. Don’t let a small group of Reverends run things and keep things shitty because that’s their bread and butter. The silent majority must now step up to the plate.

I feel the biggest problem right now is not the Police itself, it’s us, the civilians, who have not supported the police. There are too many people being very quiet about this, and it really affects a lot of the quality of life in our city.

Hold on HOLD ON!! What the fuck was I thinking,,,I forgot this is Chicago. Make any waves and they’ll inspect your house or business costing you thousands, go into the stations and try and talk to a commander, fat chance of that happening, Listen up, just move the hell out to someplace where things are better. If you have kids, you’ll really be better off.

The other problem we have on this blog is that shithead lawyers routinely troll the blog and comments looking for their next big lawsuit against the police and the city.

I wasn't complaining, I was defending the other guy that just asked a simple question. I apologize for not considering the ramifications had he/she been a reporter looking to smear you guys some more. You are probably right; it's difficult to understand what you guys put up with unless you are there yourself. Unfortunately, I do not have the pleasure of doing so (believe me, I think it would be interesting, and aggravating no doubt). You can think what you want about people who "don't understand" but all I ask is that you realize that many citizens *are* on your side. Believe it or not, we've probably sat at the same bar at EPI or the Isle. All I'm saying is don't treat us like the shitbirds you deal with on a day-to-day basis, because we're not like them, and we support you. If you want to tell me to go fuck myself, well have at it if it makes you feel better but the voters you want in your corner don't appreciate the belittling.

Being a former subordinate of J-Fed from his days with the bureau, you all have my sympathies. It strikes me as odd, however, that he has forgotten one of the things most important things the FBI: The responsibility for securing your facilities (and all they contain). In our organization, which he should know so well, considering his extensive sophisticated case work and experience (choke), the man at the top would take the heat for a security breach like this. Perhaps his inspectors might be better designated by writing up security breaches. Man up J-Fed!

You are now beginning to understand the thick bark that one must develop, just to get through the day.

That bark is needed to stay sane in an insane environment.

As the saying goes, 'Don't sweat the small stuff.', with many things the average citizen takes as being significant becoming, as the years roll on by, more and more the small stuff.


The more you read this blog and the more you review the archives, both articles and comments to same, the more you will learn about many things that the average citizen chooses not to know.

For too many citizens, the phrase 'Ignorance is bliss' is sadly the reality.

Far too many citizens prefer to buy into the talking head idiots they watch on the evening news, rather than use their brains and think for themselves.

The result is what we have here today, in our city, our county and our state, ie., the inmates running the asylum.


As unlikely as it may seem, there is much humility contained within many of those who post comments here, even if the casual observer fails to recognize it.

And humility is the prerequisite to understanding.
